New Room Reservation and Calendar Software
We are excited to announce that the Library has installed new, user-friendly room reservation and event calendar software. Call the Reference Desk at 913-682-5666 ext. 2100 if you need help making reservations or searching for events on the new platform.
We have also eliminated the $40 room fee charged to for-profit groups. All meetings are still required to be open to the public and free of admission or other charges. Selling products or services in the Library is still prohibited. See our meeting room policy for full details on using Library meeting rooms.
